Coming all the way from Brisbane, Jayani and Marty wanted to stay their first night with us at Sunrise at Penguin and it was a pleasure to host them both in our seaside house with their 3 young children.Looking after the house exceptionally well and keeping it tidy was appreciated and are welcome back anytime.

Wonderful to have such gracious and friendly guests from the Kimberley in WA. So pleased that you were able to see Wings Wildlife animals for your 2 small children and appreciated our closeness to the beach and CBD. Thank you for staying with us and leaving the house in such a tidy state - would love to meet you again one day.

A Gem in Penguin

Pros: USB hub to help keep our devices charged up, free WiFi, comfortable bedding, great uninterrupted views to the ocean, Terry the host.
Cons: I wouldn't change a thing.
A lovely comfortable home away from home and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Every detail has been carefully thought through to make it a memorable experience, exceeding our expectations. The owner Terry was very helpful and made us feel extremely welcome, before, during and after our stay. Highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed.
